    I think there was a previous issue of the australian reptile keepers magazine that showed you how to do it.

    Take out the fridge engine, throw that away, get 9m heat cord , a DL1 or DL2 thermostat (they are expensive, around 100 each, DL2 is better) and a twin prob digital thermometer. Put screw's around the whole inside of the fridge, and wrap the heat cord around it, plug heat cord into thermo, and place the thermostats probe in the fridge, set to 30 degrees. Place one probe for thermometer at top of fridge one at bottom, place the thermometer on the front of the outside of the fridge so you can view temps without opening incubator. The thermostat will beep if it get to hot/cold.

    Of course i can go into way more detail but this would become boring (for me and you )

    This is the basic way of setting up a fridge incubator, you can also hook up a computer fan to a 12volt battery to keep a constant temp all the way through the incubator.

    (All equipment needed for incubator, except computer fan and the fridge can be bought from Darren and Neil at strictly reptiles)

    cheers
    As KLassic as you can get.
